    I have this lure , can this be used for snapper? Shimano As far as squids are concerned which lure can I use to catch them? I will be setting up full FPV soon, right now I am trying to get better range by installing high performance antenna. I will post video of drone dropping bait, but a FPV view might not be soon. You can Google Drobe fishing Australia and see a guy catching tuna from a P3 I bought a cheap excellent quality drone with GPS. Bayangtoys X16 If I loose it then no regrets of looking expensive 1000$ drone

    LOL @ neighbour's goat.. I don't want to catch a shark, I need any fish which has protein... lol I am trying to save my fish expense by catching fish for free. I tied that braid with each other using 10 rounds each on 2 uni knots, I seriously hope that won't break the knot once j catch a snapper or tuna.. . I will post a video soon...

    Does having 2 uni knots on braid affect its strength? I have goat lungs, liver, and heart.. some of it has blood as well

    Hi All, So finally I had my set up ready and I went for fishing today, this is my rig. I used 950 ssm, 30lb braid, 30lb fluorocarbon leader. And my drone. I was able to cast far away, however I was not able to catch any fish. May be because of the bait I used.. I used goat liver as bait, it had blood in it and I thought I would be ideal for snapper.But I never got a single bite for more than 20 minutes. Questions: 1) I had wind knots, so I had to cut the braid and tie it together using double Uni Knot. I hope this won't affect the line strength. While reeling in, some sea weed was caught in my braid, will this reduce the braid's quality if it rubs against the sea weed? 2) May I know if meat can be used as bait?

    south australia Braid Or Mono?? Ehhh.....

    So, finally I received my reel and the line. Now, if I put the 30 lb braid 1st and then the 180 m 12lb mono, will that help or should I just use braid itself? I would have to order mono again.... can't I use braid only?

    Hmmm so the rod I found is not the one in the link I posted, its actually 8 feet tall and has capacity to handle 6 kg weight. This is the one I have, i think this is more recent one with 10Kg capacity, the one I have is 6 kg and 190m spool capacity I get you guys, I might be doing a computer game stuff here... duhh @Luvit I get your point, how much of Mono should I put over the braid? I did buy the lure but that's not the main purpose, I bought it because it was cheaper online in case I plan to use it. @Milpool Although, I will be using a bait for catching the fish. I won't go 500m for sure, will probably start around 200-300 m and see how it works out. I just wanted to get the best stuff I can once and then keep experimenting, unfortunately, the jetty I have nearby does not have any fish! only crabs.... The local bait shop and other shops are selling stuff very expensive and getting it cheap online made me buy it all in one go.. lol all I am missing is an Ugly stick... I really appreciate all you guys giving me advice, I just started fishing and it feels good to have someone guide me..... thank you all!

    I am always curious, How do you guys target a fish based on its size? Is it the size of the bait or the lure? I bought shimano coltsniper wonderfall lure 66 mm as well thinking this size lure will catch not a big fish..
